Coming out of a relatively dormant state this 2000 is a spectacular Cheval Blanc. Of recent vintages I think only the 2009 can give it a run for its money. A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc the wine has a sweet nose of menthol melted licorice boysenberry blueberry and cassis. A broad wine with compelling purity a layered texture and sweet tannin with hints of coffee and earth in the background this is by far the best Cheval Blanc since 1990 and before 2009.

Coming out of a relatively dormant state, this 2000 is a spectacular Cheval Blanc. Of recent vintages, I think only the 2009 can give it a run for its money. A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc, the wine has a sweet nose of menthol, melted licorice, boysenberry, blueberry, and cassis. A broad wine with compelling purity, a layered texture, and sweet tannin, with hints of coffee and earth in the background, this is by far the best Cheval Blanc since 1990 and before 2009. It is a legend in the making and can actually be drunk now, as the tannins have nearly melted away. This is a beauty with incredibly complex aromatics. Drink it over the next 25-30 years.
The Cheval Blanc 2000 continues to age at a glacial pace although the aromatics are open with lovely blackberry and graphite scents here augmented with a hint of undergrowth and autumn leaves. The palate is full-bodied with precise poised tannins that give this wine wonderful focus and drive. It is very fresh with a core of opaque dense black fruit at its heart. There is a sense of compactness to this Saint Emilion that urges you to cellar it for another decade
...It has given a mysterious wonderful perfume to the intense richness of the Merlot. It has less of the explosive power of Ausone it is more subtle and elegant reserving its explosion of richness for the end when a welter of black fruits seems to go on for ever... Wine Enthusiast.
Fresh mineral berry and earth aromas. Decadent. Full-bodied yet refined and silky with a lovely long finish that goes on and on with tobacco berry cherry and spices. It s not the 1998 but it s very good indeed. Best after 2006. -JS Wine Spectator.
